    Unhappy Help me!!! It's impossible to bulk up for me...


    Right now I'm at 154 pounds and it took me forever to go from 150 to 154. I eat alot I never let my stomach be empty. I drink weigth gainer in the morning, after working out and at night before bed. I also drink jack3d before workig out. I workout four times a week for an hour and a half and abs 3 times a week. Here is my schedule...
    Mon- biceps and back
    Wed- chest and triceps
    Fri- shoulders and traps
    Sat- legs
    My question is what can I take in order to gain weight and bulk up? My friend told me about nutaceutics testron sx? (some testron booster that said really worked for him) And yes I do deadlifts and squats and sets of pull ups with weights attached to me... I'm cut but not big Im still skinny please help me out. The weight gainer helped a little but not so much now. I want to get to 170 or 180 but at this rate it will take 100000000 years thanks*
    NOW(154lbs) AND BEFORE(134lbs).....

    Sigh...
    If you're not gaining weight, you're not eating enough. You may think you're eating "a lot" but, obviously, it's insufficient to keep you anabolic.

    Eat more. Simple as that. Adding lots of calorie dense foods is what you need - nuts, oil, eggs, steak, cream, cheese, etc.

    ^^This.

    Add a tablespoon or two of extra virgin olive oil to your meals and/or shakes. That'll add a few hundred more calories to your diet. Also make sure that you're drinking weight gainers in addition to your other meals, not in place of them.

    You probably have a crazy high metabolism. First thing is to stop working out so much. Four days a week and an hour and a half each time is too much for your body. Try taking off 2 weeks from the gym to give your body a break but still keep eating large amounts of food. Once you get back in the gym you only need to go 2 or 3 days a week for 30-45 minutes each time. Lift heavy and do the basic exercises...bench press, squats, deadlifts, lat pulldowns, etc. Try to use 3 or more tablespoons of olive oil each day for the calories & fat and sleep as much as possible.

    please post your diet and not just what you eat the calories and breakdown of protein, carbs and fats too.
    if you can't provide this, then you're not in a position to say you eat enough.

    its actually not funny. i dont care what you eat, i care about how many calories you take in and what your macros are. you need to track everything you eat on fitday.com
    then report back here in a week with your report.

    A lot more. Add 6eggs and some turkey sausage to that morning shake. Make that 6" a 12". Whatever you're eating for lunch, double all the serving sizes. Add another meal between 2 and 8pm. You ain't eating jack.

    i was 130 with a blazing fast metabolism back in the day. now im 190, and it is possible dude. if you want to be 180, you better eat like your 180 pounds, or maybe even more depending on how much you burn stuff up. i had to intake like 200 grams of protein a day to finally start putting mass on, and i was 160 pounds when i went on a good bulking diet. dont resolve to prohormones or anything yet, you definetly can put on weight dont give up

    Get on a bulking anabolic like M-drol which would really help you bulk up and eat a lot of carbs in your diet.

    Gaining mass in a nutshell (a big nutshell)

    basic bulking concepts above. my diet is on post 44 (i think), and i guarantee you if you ate what i ate, you'd grow like a frikken weed.

    we're only called "hardgainers" because we have to try harder its not impossible though.

    Well, there is the problem little buddy... you don't have the desire it takes to get big. you will always be a sub-skinny boy untill you BUCK UP AND TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR BODY! You need to force feed your face with a minimum of 5000 cals a day of good whole food.... none of that mackeedees **** and none of those ding-dongs you kids like to shove in your mouths. Of that you need to get at least 400g protien.

    When you finaly decide to take charge you will be amazed at the results. Nothing is more anabolic then food my friend... especially for a skinny ass

    you dont need anabolics yet. at 150 pounds, you have alot left to go. dont listen to these guys telling you to take mdrol. yeah, it will work, but you can reach your goal naturally. once you get up in the 170's or 180s, im sure the forum goers will be happy to help you out with a cycle

    Eat more and drink 1 gallon of water a day. Make sure you are getting a good 150grams of protein a day.

    Replace those shakes with whole foods, then drink a shake after the meal.

    i'm cutting and pasting my bulking diet, and hopefully that'll help. i think i was at 4k calories when i went from 126 to 151, then i stalled for a bit and this 7k diet took me to where i am now



    my diet :
    breakfast - 5 eggs, two bowls of cereal (organic version of honey bunches of oats) with whole milk, two cups of coffee with three cups of 1/2 and 1/2 = 1900 calories
    snack - peanut butter - 2 tbsp = 180 calories
    snack - string cheese = 90 calories
    lunch - two double cheeseburgers = 800 calories
    pre workout - 50g of protein, 120g of carbs = 650 calories
    post workout - 50g of protein, 120g of carbs = 650 calories
    snack - peanut butter - 2 tbsp = 180 calories
    snack - string cheese = 90 calories
    dinner - 8oz buffalo or chicken + veggies + rice = 400 calories (est.)
    snack - two servings of peanut butter (4 tbsp) = 360 calories
    snack - string cheese = 90 calories
    bedtime meal - 6-8 oz steak - no veggies or carbs = 280 calories (i'm guessing here)

    also throughout the day i drink 1/2 a gallon of whole milk (1000+ calories), and i don't count the calories of canola and olive oil i cook with, since most of them are left in the pan.
